Maame Obeng is a nursing major with an interest in establishing a community based clinic or hospital. Her experiences as a CNA, a certification she has held since her senior year of high school, are what made her decide that nursing was definitely for her. She has volunteered at the Hospital of Central Connecticut for two years and has also been a part of the Hunger and Homelessness Project (a subgroup of UConn PIRG). Maame is originally from Ghana but lives in New Britain, CT, where she graduated from New Britain High School. She enjoys trying new workouts with friends and hopes to study abroad in Europe before graduation.
